thaÑaÑaÑaÑaÑaÑñ of labor unions and good government organizations say mitt romney and his family made millions from investments as a result of the auto bailout but did not reveal the windfall in his june 1st, 2012 financial disclosure report to the office of government ethics. uaw president bob king says mitt romney and his family personally profited by at least $15.3 million from the 2009 auto bailout, yet did not disclose that in financial statements to run for president.

an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has showed leadership. governor romney, i don't think there was a natural disaster while he was head of the state.

need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the president seems to have a lead in ohio. how would you handicap it, if you are looking at it back i have been looking at the polls all morning. they do show, basically, a dead heat right now. probably had a two or three-point lead a week or two ago. the storm, a lot of people -- connell: i have to interrupt you. we have breaking news now with a briefing of the mayor, michael bloomberg. >> let me caution everyone listenin
and a rebuilding effort where you get the keynesian sort of spurt of growth because you're going to have government spending and you're going to have people spending to rebuild. so, that counter acts the negative gdp growth, that the cost of this. but i will tell you this, this is not a terrorist attack, what is scary about this, is that when you, you can have something very serious like that, and the markets could be shut down for a lot longer and that will be a problem. and don't discount the fact when markets are shut down for a long time, people question the economy. and businesses cannot get financing, stocks don't trade and you don't know the value of corporate america. neil: you sound like a callus individual. >> there's other-- >> there are thousands of lives could have been in danger and here you are pursuing the almighty dollar. >> i did not say put people's lives in danger, i said have a contingency plan. neil: but you need human beings in some way, shape or form in that area, yes or no? >> no. neil: liar, liar, pants on fire. look, whatever helps capitalism. >> no offense, the floor tra
of the economy except for government employment. government employment again fell pretty significantly, but across services, even manufacturing has been having some pretty good job growth. and retail trade, so it was kind of across the board for this month. overall, what you have seen is the health sector, if you say over the last two years, where have the jobs been growing? they haven't been really in anything touching on the housing market. so real estate, construction, those things haven't done well. but a lot of services, a lot of export related, and a lot of manufacturing have been kind of the sectors leading it. >> so the president is promising in the next four years if elected he will create jobs in the millions. mitt romney is promising if elected he'll create 12 million jobs. but at the same time, romney underscoring government isn't the one that creates jobs. how does either one deliver on the promise of creating millions of jobs? >> well, you know, the first thing to note is when an economy is growing, even at a moderate pace, it's going to generate a lot of jobs. i think if

to our partners in the federal governme government. president obama has been on top of this situation and very informed. i've spoken to him several times myself. he wants to know what new york needs. he has been all over. fema has been fantastic. and responsive and working these types of situations. i have total respect for the job that fema is doing. i want to thank them very much as well as the army corps of engineers. as you all know, one of the major problems still is the water in the tunnels, the water has receded, so when you drive around, it looks like most of the water is gone, but the water filled the subway tunnels in many places, fill the brooklyn battery tunnel, and when the water fills the tunnels, that means con-edison has issues. much of con-ed's equipment was in the tunnels, so getting the water out of the tunnels probably the main -- one of the main orders of business right now. first a transportation update. as you know, the new york city buses are at full service today. thank you, mr. joe and your extraordinary team. there will be limited commuter rail service on me
create a perfect storm for stocks. we're going to explain that. >>> does our government now need a secretary of business? president obama thinks so. what about the business community? we're going to get reaction straight from business owners mouths. even when they say it's not, even in this storm, it's always about money melissa: so, starting off tonight, no doubt hurricane sandy will cost a lot of money. it is still going strong, headed right for western new york. let us get the latest on the path from weather.com meteorologist. bernie, what is it getting ready to hit now? >> it is off to the east of pittsburgh. as you mentioned melissa, it is moving northward, when you take a look at storm, look how large it is. it is covering the eastern half of the united states. there is moisture feeding in on the earn end of it from the tropics. that is why we still have so much rain talking about. heaviest rain thankfully east of i-95 corridor through western pennsylvania and back to northwest indiana with this rain. we're not seeing the devastating rain we saw yesterday. pockets of heavy
they saw were homes destroyed and streets still under water. president obama promised the government would do whatever it can to help storm victims. >> we'll follow up to make sure you get all the help you need until you rebuild. >> reporter: not far away the search for traps or missing people on staten island continued. nypd rescued six people from roof troops on wednesday. there are signs of life is returning to normal in new york city. all three airports are open as of today as is the new york stock exchange and broadway shows. problems still persist. traffic in the city is nothing short of a nightmare without public transportation wednesday manhattan streets were clogged with people trying to get back to work. there's some good news. subway and train service is starting up again today at least on a limited basis. >> i am declaring a transportation emergency. >> reporter: mayor bloomberg is mandating that all cars driving into manhattan has to have at least three people. >> i know it is inconvenient for a lot of people but the streets can only handle so much. >> reporter: half of all ga
morning news. some important notes to pass along for you right now. the federal government will reopen today. employees still have the option for unscheduled leave or telework. most schools are reopened today but there are some delays. can you find all that information scrolling on the bottom of the screen. >> now, the power outages. utility companies are making head way. at this hour, dominion virginia has just under 21,000 people still in the dark. bge is now under 30,000 in anne arundel, howard, prince george's counties. pepco promised to have the power restored to 90% of its customers by this morning. >> they're moving along pretty where well there. >> great. >> other people still in the dark but we'll get there. >> yes. >> tucker, you have a lot of issues with power outages and trees. >> i mean certain neighborhoods, we just are more prone to it. my neighborhood, every time, as i said before. if my friends across the street, their children have a birthday party, blow the candles, the lights go out in the neighborhood. >> you have a lot of company. >> i do. things are going to get
their power so. melissa: maybe it is something we have to commit to? utilities are regulated by the government and they're told how much they can charge their customers. they don't necessarily have the room for this kind of expense. maybe that is the problem with having regulated businesses. maybe we all have to suck it up as a community and pay the assessment and put these power lines underground? >> you know, really depends geographically i think. each individual community has to take that cost benefit analysis. if storm damage is something that, you know, people are paying a lot for, it may be a idea but there's, other problems with burying them underground. where, you know, they're harder to get to. so when you have some sort of issue like a tree root breaking a line or flooding taking out power, it is can be harder to fix. can take longer to fix. again there is tradeoffs for both systems. melissa: but empirically, power has to go down a lot less frequently when it is underground. have you studied frequency? seems completely predictable. a storm whips through new york state. you know exact

back. >> fema said the government plans to pay 100% of the bill to restore power. >> can't get over those pictures. >>> our weather now, rain last night. >> some sprinkles today. folks in the north bay, it was wet all night for halloween. we got breaks in san jose, but we saw rain, half inch in the heaviest locations. clear outside right now. where the rain showers have gone, moving off in this direction. light scattered showers, a few drop ins san jose this morning. rainfall accumulation. you can see it decreases as you get south towards san jose. good news about the rain, the thing i like, it really does start to help the fire danger. till we are into had winter and the days -- you know, rain helps. good news there. fire danger high. we can see the wind events. 65 in san raff el. 68 oakland. -- san rafael, 68 oakland. highs this weekend, warmer. we will have that in a minute. the weather system rolls off. tomorrow, friday, that is great, well, this is over night. it might drizzle. increasing clouds tomorrow. partly cloudy skies. hazy sunshine. that keeps temperatures mild. like to
between the two campaigns and two visions. one says that government should get out of the way and let the private sector do its job. one, the president's campaign, said government's important. at a time like this, people are reminded as clearly and as graphically as they can be how important government is, how important it is that fema does its job and the state of new jersey and governor christie and his people do their job and that andrew cuomo and mayor bloomberg do their job. so government matters. this brings that home to people. >> what about the idea that people are just upset? you've got millions of people still without power. you've got, you know, all of this cleanup going on. isn't there some truth to the idea that people are just not happy right now and they go against the incumbent as a result of that, for no other reason just because mother name impacted their lives? >> the people are smarter than that. as long as they see the relief efforts are moving quickly and that the president or governors or mayors are doing everything they can, they're going to appreciate those ef
and officials, reassuring that the government will be there to help. >> we're going to get this whole thing -- we're going to get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: at his side republican governor chris christie, a romney supporter. to show he was moving beyond partisan politics. >> he has been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail, romney toned down his criticism of the president, coping his message positive as he tries to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's popular former governor jeb bush, romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all, and even to have my veto upheld, i need to have people across the aisle that i could work with. >> remember the president talked about romneysia? well it's contagious. congressman ryan's caught it. >> reporter: vice president joe biden accused the romney campaign of lying in a new ad in ohio that implies the auto
been a little bit embarrassing to the government. >> right after the storm actually happened, though, and came through there. you took in five local families. a lot of people had no where to go. where are those people now? are they still with you and what made you decide to take them in? >> they're going to be with me a long time. there is no where for them to go. these are the volunteer firemen from seaside heights. we have a police officer and some other emergency personnel. they literally have no place to go. >> i was up there and i'm curious because i did this boat tour and i took a look to try to find some of this natural gas that, as you know, was spewing from the system there. i know it was, you were spelling it in your area. where i was in manalokin they shut that down. >> it was really money versus lives. it turns out that sea water would have seeped into the system and the whole main line would have been replaced which would have taken six, seven, eight months and $100 million. the governor, again, shut the system down, the main line down. however, that caused an enormous a
and a government in the united states that actually likes job creators, that wants to help job creators. >> romney called yesterday's jobs report a sad reminder that unemployment is essentially unchanged at 7.9%. while the obama campaign touted the 171,000 jobs added with improved numbers in september and august. we have our correspondents spread throughout the battleground states to bring you the latest on the election and the final push for both candidates. dan lothian is in ohio where the president will speak next hour. dan, good morning. how is president obama handling the post-sandy power outages and flooding on the campaign trail? it's a difficult balance, i'm sure, between the two. >> reporter: you make a really good point, because the president is still trying to make this big push in the final days of this campaign, but at the same time, has to do his day job dealing with the aftermath of hurricane sandy. a white house official said the president was briefed overnight on the latest situation there, and then this morning, he headed over to fema headquarters, where he got another briefing f
, reassuring them the government would be there to help. >> everybody safe? that's the most important thing then we'll get this whole thing set up. >> reporter: apartment his side was new jersey republican governor chris christie, a mitt romney supporter. recognizing christie for his leadership the president sought to show he was moving beyond partisan politics. >> he's been aggressive in making sure that the state got out in front of this incredible storm. >> reporter: back on the campaign trail romney on wednesday toned down his criticism of the president keeping his message positive as he tried to win over florida voters. >> washington has to begin to come together. >> reporter: accompanied by the state's former popular governor jeb bush romney emphasized his own record as massachusetts governor of bipartisanship. >> it was not lost on me to get anything done at all and even the have my veto upheld i had to have people across the aisle i kwork with. >> reporter: the temporary cease-fire didn't dpoend the number twos. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious.
confident you will get support you need from state, and federal government challenge play a role -- federal government that will play a role. >> there is no doubt governor made it clear he is all in committed. and you know when it comes to the repair, you know congress has passed and i have supported, laws, including our fema legislation that to the best of our ability to tries to make whole. there is going to be needs for more loans for people to get their businesses back up and running. the most disturbing thing is the inability of people to make a living short-term, because their business has been destroyed. if they were 100 reds of yards of -- hundreds of yards of the boardwalk, this is a beautiful area in and around the area appreciates, and see it destroyed, so completely, you know brings tearing ts tears to, even when people talk like i did about important of pla balance budget, there is always that caveat, we write into balance budget amendment, when there is is a national disaster, that takes precedent, we need to be fully onboard, in providing whatever resources are needed to make
're getting richer as a nation because of rebuilding its your taking government money giving it to a contractor or whatever the case may be. that has come up. >> it will have an affect on gdp growth but not right away. probably be first or second quarter you will see a little of that but you are right. of the question is where the money coming from, is the insurance companies or taxpayer money, we don't have a sense of it but from an accounting perspective, it will bump up gdp growth a bit in the subsequent couple of quarters. connell: i wonder how much of a slowdown in the near-term we will see. tough to tell. you come to a place like midtown manhattan where we are broadcasting from ended is like any other day but a few blocks south once it gets dark you see a line, a line in the city with a tale of two cities. on the bridges you see lights on one side and darkness on the other side. up here there's commerce in midtown, people doing business, restaurants are open, people don't have power and doing this ourselves and everybody else we are here spending money, doing things, sp
, and that is the government report that comes out friday. government jobs report expectations comes in at a bit less than that. pegging that number anywhere from 105,000 to 130,000. you know, any way you slice it, we're still at a point where we're only adding enough to barely keep up the population growth. it's not going to bring down unemployment in a significant way at this point. it's been kind of stuck. the economy added 114,000 jobs in september. this one is the last option before the election. it takes on that much more importance. both sides are likely to find something to talk about. president obama would say it's better than the 800,000 jobs we were losing when he took office. and romney could come out and say the unemployment rate is still high. and both would be right. economists would say it doesn't really matter. what's going on in your own life? do you have a job? does your spouse have a job? most people will vote with what is happening in their own lives. >> most people hear blah, blah, blah. >> it is really what you're feeling more than statistical. >>> more charges expected in the penn state
will it cost the government's disaster refund leaf fu -- relief fund, and is there enough to cover it? eamon javers is here with more. >> you can see a very swollen potomac river. you can see a lot of debris going down the river. we've seen entire trees floating by our position here. the potomac has stayed in its banks. over here, they have these massive 20-foot flood walls that were ready to roll in case the river breached its banks last night. so far, so good here. as for the federal government's response, we just had a conference call with fema. they have about $3.6 billion left in their disaster contingency fund. that's as of october 26th. they're also saying that president obama when he made that major disaster declaration for new jersey and for new york, he did that verbally. what that meant was they were able to cut through a lot of the red tape and move this process along and get the response going even before the disaster happened. they're also saying that fema is dispatching housing inspectors to go out and take a look at the claims. they want to avoid any kind of massive fraud pro

that they normally go to vote. and that all of our efforts as government leaders, regardless of party, but certainly as mayor of the city of philadelphia, i'm going to do everything i can to make sure all of our polling places are in working, operating order. i don't think we have any at this point that are without power. but i have ever confidence that governor corbett and his team, the secretary of the commonwealth, well make sure that the polling places are operating, either under their own power or with generators. and that is how we should approach it. >> and mayor, i know you have a very busy schedule because you're dealing with this, and with the election, just three days. three days to the election. and i'm just being honest here, of course we want to encourage everybody to vote, let's be realistic. when you saw the woman who lost her kids, they washed away. when you see people on the corner, saying we're dying here, we don't have food, shelter, clothes, i can't get gas. where would presidential voting and politics be on people's minds if they have lost everything they own? >> reporter: well
but government shouldn't be in the business of making women's healthcare and moral decisions for them. >> i think medical services to women, there should be safety and cleanliness in those, so that's up to the states. >> reporter: since the virginia tech shootings gun laws have not changed despite efforts by victims and families. here's the mother of a wounded student trying to unsuccessfully convince george allen to get rid of the gun show loophole. that allows private sales with no background checks. >> as far as private sales, no, i'm not for it. >> certainly background record checks at gun shows and i'm very open to the notion that these high-capacity magazines in weapons that are just meant to harm people, that, you know, we ought to be looking at those. >> no, i'm not one who wants to take away the rights of law abiding citizens to protect their feamsz or themselves. >> reporter: peggy fox, 9news now. >> you can see peggy's other stories on these candidates, particularly their stances on spending and economics, at wusa9.com. >>> tomorrow is the last day for virginians to vote absentee. toda
for the government providing services or assistance for people, and then he was saying that he was raised by a single mother, and that the government stepped in to bridge the gap in between jobs for her and the family, just as he said, the federal government is doing on the east coast. with the storm. and then he pledged some money to the red cross for that. so i think we may be seeing some kind of segue in that regard, certainly from someone introducing president obama. i have to tell you, about a minute or so ago, air force one touched down here in green bay, a pretty dramatic entrance, the crowd was excited to see the plane come in. and i do know from a campaign source that president obama off the top of his remarks he will give momentarily will talk about the storm but also getting back to campaign business and making the case for his re-election. we're certainly going to be hearing some politics as we heard before the storm, as well, ashleigh. >> and, you know, when you just sort of glossed over that, made a donation to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about
timeline as you mentioned as well. the government is predicting that in new york city, the economic loss alone of what i'm just reporting to you is going to be upwards of $7 billion. now, that's an early estimate. and since we don't know when things are going to be up and running again, who knows if that number is going to balloon. look at the -- look behind me. this is as it is, and there is no one doing any work to clear those streets. that's going to be a secondary priority to get -- to making sure everything else is operational in this city. one other thing i want to tell you, just the way new yorkers can be, we get a bad wrap a lot of times here, but we have a live truck operating that has a lot of power and we have neighborhood people who have come and formed to plug in and get electricity for their phones, to charge up their phones. it is a pretty good mood, despite what came through here as mayor bloomberg said the worst storm the city has ever seen, anderson. >> and a lot of parts of lower manhattan too, very spotty cell service, people aren't getting e-mails on their mobile dev
what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agenda. we need a middle class agenda that rewards hard work and responsibility. we don't need a partisan agenda. we need a commonsense agenda that says when we educate a poor child, we'll all be better off. that says when we fund the research of a young scientist, her new discovery will benefit every american. we need a vision that says we don't just look out for ourselves. we look out for one another. we look out for future generations, and we meet those obligations by working together. that's the change we believe in. that's what this election is all about. now, let's be clear. achieving this agenda won't be easy. it's never been easy. we always knew that. back in 2008 when we talked about change, i told i wasn't just talking about changing presidents. i wasn't just talking about changing parties. i was talking about changing our politics. i ran because the voices of the american people, your voice, had been shut out of our democracy for way too long by lobbyists and spe
